Sunshine returned to the Okanagan to start the first full work week of October.
Temperatures are also on the rise, headed up to around 22 C Monday afternoon.
The upper ridge of high pressure that brought in the sunshine will keep skies mostly sunny both Tuesday and Wednesday with a few more clouds possible in the Shuswap and North Okanagan.
The mercury make it back into the low 20s through Thursday when a few more clouds roll in across the region as the ridge starts to break down.
Mostly cloudy skies will linger on Friday as daytime highs drop into the upper-teens before falling into the mid-teens for the long weekend with waves of rain pushing through.
